Vegan Samoa Cookie Pancakes with Salted Date Caramel, Toasted Coconut, Chocolate drizzle

Remember this Multigrain pancake mix.. It makes amazing pancakes! 
It is Friday, and time to plan the weekend breakfast right. How about some Samoa Cookie Pancakes. Easy to put together and dare I say very addictive. 

Fluffy pancakes, topped with Date caramel, toasted Coconut and a chocolate drizzle. Insanely delicious. :)

These can be easily made gluten-free with you favorite gluten-free pancake recipe, or try my mutligrain Gluten-free Pancake Mix.
I had my temporary crown fitting yesterday that took like 2.5 hours and squeezed all the energy out of me. I am still dazed and my brain is working on some half somewhere mode. So less words, more pictures, more ideas and recipe today.

Allergen Information: Free of Dairy,egg, corn, soy, yeast. Can be made gluten-free with gluten-free pancake mix.

Makes 4-5 pancakes
For the Pancakes:
1 cup my multi-grain Pancake Mix or use my gluten-free pancake mix
1/4 cup almond milk
1/3+ cup water
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons oil(optional)

a generous dash of cinnamon powder and vanilla extract

Salted Date Caramel: 
7-8 Medjool Dates, depitted
1 Tablespoon Maple syrup
water as needed
1 teaspoon coconut oil
a generous pinch of fine sea salt

1/4 cup shredded dried coconut
Melted Chocolate

Make Pancakes:
Add the lemon juice to 1/3 cup water. Add the almond milk, water, oil, cinnamon, vanilla to the dry pancake mix. Mix until just combined and let sit for 2 minutes. If the mixture feels too thick(it is thicker than plain flour pancake mix), then add a tablespoon more water. 
Heat the pan on medium heat. Grease with a little oil. Once the pan is hot, pour ladle full (1/4 cup) of the pancake batter for each pancake. Spread the batter a bit with the ladle if needed. Cover the pan for 2 minutes. Remove cover and continue for another 2 or so minutes until the top is bubbly. Flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Reduce head a bit to low-medium while cooking if the pan gets too hot. Or use your favorite pancake mix recipe, and adjust liquid accordingly.

Toast the Coconut:
Dry roast the coconut shreds in a pan on medium heat for a few minutes until golden. 

Make Date Caramel:
Soak the dates for half an hour in warm water. Drain then blend with all the ingredients into a smooth paste. Use 2-3 Tablespoons of water or as needed for desired consistency. Omit salt for plain caramel. You can make the caramel before hand and store in the refrigerator. 

Chocolate Drizzle:
Melt 1/4 cup chocolate chips on double boiler with a Tablespoon almond/coconut milk. Add more milk if you like a more flowy drizzle. 
Or mix equal amount of cocoa powder, maple syrup into a smooth mixture and use. Add some coconut oil for a sheen if you like. 

Top each pancake, or just the top pancake with a generous amount of the date caramel, then sprinkle with toasted coconut and drizzle melted chocolate. Use maple syrup if needed. 

These pancakes are being shared at Rickis wellness weekend, Healthy Vegan Fridays.


  1. Sunday is my day to eat whatever I want - and I always start with a big, delicious breakfast. These look like a perfect way to begin an indulgent day!

    1. Annie, what a coincidence, Sunday is my husband's pancake day! I make him Sunday morning pancakes every Sunday, without fail! :)

    2. its not that decadent if u hold the chocolate a bit. hubbs who usually doesnt like pancakes because they are too sweet loved these!

  2. This is the second blog post in a row featuring droolworthy pancakes. I think the universe is trying to tell me I need to whip up a batter. And who am I to disagree?

    1. Yes, that is exactly what the universe is trying to tell you ;)

  3. You've done it to me again. You just keep posting deliciousness.

    My husband has a Sunday morning ritual. Pancakes, plain. All he likes are straight up pancakes, nothing fancy. Something tells me that even though he would probably kill me for making these on a Sunday, if I presented him with a plate of these on say, Saturday, he would not object.

    1. ah hmm. i will leave it to you to decide:)

  4. When I first saw the title my thought was it sounded like something that should be on the Sutra menu! I'm a little obsessed with waffles at the moment and I can see caramel and chocolate covered waffles in my future.

    1. I should go to Sutra. I just wish they had better seating. :)
      of course waffles and pancakes are interchangeable :)

  5. Chocolate, Caramel, Coconut and Pancakes!! All favourite foods of mine! I don't think we have samoa cookies here but I should probably make some :)

  6. Holy cow! These look amazing. Samoa cookies were definitely my favorite girl scout cookies pre-vegan. My mom used to buy packs of them when they sold them and we would freeze them so they lasted.

  7. Friday is my Sunday, and Larry is the pancake maker, maybe I can convince him to whip these up. (probably won't take much convincing) Hope you feel better after the ordeal at the dentist. ugh!

  8. I've thought about you today. I was looking for a fixer in India b/c I'm really curious about the animal welfare in India, but I hope one day I will visit it. Have you been there and where have you been to? Mmmm, I want some fluffy pancakes for breakfast - it's so hard to make something like this here in Buenos Aires, my kitchen doesn't have a mixing tool, blender nor a processor, I'm sure I can mix the ingredients easily with a table spoon. The date caramel & chocolate drizzle = amazing. I want to eat breakfast with you one day!

  9. Mouth watering, delicious dad love this type of recipe, I'll definitely make it for my dad.....Hope he liked it.

  10. Wow, these pancakes should not be legal! Samoas are my favorite Girl Scout cookie ever!

  11. Wow, this is such a crazy ridiculous amazing breakfast! You should probably open up a vegan brunch spot and serve these. I would fly to Seattle for them!

  12. damn, girl. these look killer!

  13. This looks so delicious and flavorful! I love cakes, and I definitely need to try it like this.

  14. Wow looks amazing + so fun. Thanks again for submitting to :)

  15. I can't get enough pancakes lately! These look incredible Richa, I so need to try that date caramel sauce.

  16. Exactly what I needed - a new recipe to try this morning to put off more homework! Can't wait!

  17. These are just ridiculous! I mean, wow!

  18. Oh yes a girl after my own heart- fantastical Richa!

    Hope you are feeling better after your fitting, the dentist is never a fun place to be :(

  19. These pancakes look delicious! I just ate the girlscout version and now I want these to go along with it :)
